My Inky Friends Challenge #10 - Color!

This month's challenge from My Inky Friends is a fun color challenge, and with the changes in the air around here, I immediately thought of Autumn! Naturally, Colorful Seasons came to mind so I got out the Daffodil, Poppy, and Granny Apple Stampin' Blends, as well as the Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green ink pads and went to work.

The background is a Granny Apple Green watercolor wash. When it was dry, the greeting was stamped with StazOn and then it was embossed with the Subtle folder. After adhering a Granny Apple Green mat, it was attached to the card base.

The leaves were stamped with Poppy Parade ink, then colored with the three Blends' colors and die cut with the coordinating die. I colored a piece of Linen Thread with the Light Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends marker to layer on top of the Burlap Ribbon for a little added interest.
